The bitter cold and gray skies of winter are on the horizon, and as soon as it sets in, it can feel like the dreariest time of year will never end. This is the perfect time to turn the inside of your home or business into a cozy retreat, and there’s no simpler way to do so than with a fresh coat of paint on the walls. Read on to learn why warm paint tones should be at the top of your list for consideration.
Why Go Warm?
The eyes interpret warm hues as moving towards you, in turn making spaces feel a bit smaller. This is why you’ve likely heard it said at one point or another that you shouldn’t paint a small room a dark color, but this is the perfect time to make your own rules. In contrast, the advancing visual illusion of these shades helps spaces feel contained and cozy, making them exceptional for a room where you like to gather.
Stimulate the Senses
Forget hibernating when temps turn frosty. While the desire is strong to hunker down inside when things outside look gray and bleak, spending time surrounded in warm-based colors provides stimulation and promotes activity. This makes these colors great choices for rooms that get a lot of use. Think of how they could stimulate conversations, imaginations, and motivation.
How To Choose a Warm Wall Color
Now that warm paint shades are on your radar, explore what constitutes a warm hue. Base tones of warm colors tend to be yellow and red, which automatically adds reds, yellows, and oranges to the roster of color possibilities, however, you aren’t limited to shades in those particular color families. Any palette with those undertones provide the intended safe feeling, meaning that even some purples, greens and blues can remain in the running.
